As per the excellent advice I recieved here in the Jockey Journal I discovered that my panhead had been assembled (by the previous owner) WITHOUT a throwout bearing!!!! No wonder I could never get my clutch to stay adjusted for long! Makes me wonder what other things may be missing!? I am amazed it lasted two years like that! Anyway guys thanks for convincing me to completly tear the sucker apart instead of just replacing the adjusting screw.

No throwout bearing with a foot clutch to boot, you must've had 1 helluva time with that clutch ! Did you replace it with the big bearing? I have a late model 1 on my shovel chop with a foot clutch and so far so good.
